*** SE HABLA ESPAÑOL***
My name is Rosalba Navarrete, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) with the state of Texas, License #70027.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2010 from UTEP at El Paso, TX and my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from St. Mary’s University at San Antonio, Texas in 2012.
I am certified by the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC) as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) #301879 and I am a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S) #S2668.
My clinical training has prepared me to work with adults, children, couples and group[ counseling.
I am bilingual in English and Spanish.
I specialize in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, such as anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, depressed mood, life adjustments, anger issues, behavioral issues, traumatic events, women's issues, couples issues, poor communication, infidelity, weight loss and grief.
Individual Counseling Sessions
I currently provide individual counseling sessions to adults and children ages 3-7 years old for play therapy. All my sessions start with an intake assessment in which I will ask you several questions to gather information that will help me get to know you better and understand the reason you are seeking services.
We will work on designing a treatment plan that works for you to focus our sessions in achieving your goals. We will update your treatment goals as needed. I will monitor your progress continuously and revise your original symptoms after several sessions.
I enjoy working with individual adults, kids and couples. I utilize approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gottman Method level one training for couples, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT), solution-focused, Eclectic therapy, and child-centered play therapy.
I may also incorporate creative modalities in my sessions such as sandtray therapy interventions.
All my approaches will be tailored to your needs. My job is to allow you to gain insight and learn tools and techniques to achieve a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle. Please visit www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapy-types/ to find out more about therapy approaches.
Couples Counseling Sessions
I enjoy helping couples identify their goals, gain insight about their needs and learn and implement the tools they need to move towards the best direction for both of them. I utilize techniques from the Gottman method level one training, which facilitates building a strong foundation, increase positive interactions, increase appreciation, learn to manage conflict, create shared meaning, re-build trust, and increase commitment, among other things, to improve overall relationship satisfaction.
Eye Movement Desinsetization and Repocessing ( EMDR)
I am an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) trained therapist. EMDR therapy is a psychotherapy approach that utilizes a set of standardized protocols for the treatment of trauma. EMDR utilizes bilateral stimulation of the brain, such as eye movements or tapping, and is utilized in the reprocessing of traumatic experiences that are currently triggering unwanted emotional or physical symptoms.
"Play therapy utilizes play, children's natural medium of expression, to help them express their feelings more easily through toys instead of words."
-Center for Play Therapy-UNT-
A nonverbal, therapeutic intervention that makes use of a sandtray and a variety of figurines utilized to create scenes of miniature worlds on the sand and allows you to express and gain insight about the things that are difficult to say with words.
